    RemoteInterface static variables : verifier spec violation

    mouanssir Newbie

      I have this error:

      12:14:24,943 WARN [verifier] EJB spec violation:
      Bean : FinderIndexHome
      Method : public abstract FinderIndex create() throws CreateException, RemoteException
      Section: 6.10.6
      Warning: The method return values in the home interface must be of valid types for RMI/IIOP.

      When I try to return a "FinderIndex" RemoteInterface because JBOss thinks that my
      RemoteInterface is in violation of a spec. The remote Inteface causing the problem
      looks like this:

      public interface FinderIndex extends EJBObject {

      public static final Integer SUPPLIER = new Integer(0);
      public DBData getPricingDepartureCities(boolean useCache) throws Exception, RemoteException;
      }

      I can fix the problem by removing the public static final line.

      I can also fix the problem by changing the line so that the remote interface looks
      like this:

      public interface FinderIndex extends EJBObject {

      public static final int SUPPLIER = 0;
      public DBData getPricingDepartureCities(boolean useCache) throws Exception, RemoteException;
      }

      My question is:

      1) why is the FinderIndex an invalid type for RMI/IIOP (what part of what spec is being violated?)
      2) why is it fixed when i change the public static final variable from an Object to a primitive type?

      Does anyone know? Is this correct behaviour?
